Pros: Quiet, comfortable beds, friendly staff
Location: Right next to UAB Hospital, didn't check out other activities.
Took a relative for testing at the hospital which was just across the street. The staff was friendly and explained everything I needed to know. The hotel was very quiet, clean, and comfortable. It has a small eatery on the premises with light fare and beverages. We had an excellent experience at this hotel.

Great hotel for a visit to UAB

Great night spent at the Courtyard. My husband and I had a VERY early flight into town and the staff found us a room at 9:00AM for a nap before an appointment at UAB. I've never had a hotel be so helpful - without a fight! Friendly staff and very clean room. Everything you'd expect from a courtyard, plus popcorn and warm drinks in the lobby!

Hotel refused to honor the booking, only offering one breakfast for a family of five! We went to waffle House instead. Their staff are properly trained, professional, kind and courteous.

Rude at check in

Our reservation was wrong. The lady who checked us in couldn't have cared less. I think this woman hates her job. It was a bad start for a birthday trip to a beautiful city.

Wonderful hotel and staff. Great location and parking for downtown is only $6 if you park and leave or $10 if you take the vehicle in and out. Nice restaurant on site, and the work out center is great and clean. We will be back again.

Pros: close to everything we needed downtown and surprisingly easy commute.
Cons: leave it like it is!
Location: Like I said easy to get around downtown, walking distance to 15 restaurants, and a staff at your beck and call. The Bistro has cold brews what more
excellent hotel life flight woke us up a couple of times but the hotel has know control over that and we could not get free Wi-Fi to work had to pay 4.99 a night no biggie.
